Today we’re faced with a dilemma… and I suppose it’s the best kind of dilemma to have. It’s a fashion dilemma. When we first saw this bridal hat covered in blooms, we may have let out an external scream. But THEN we were graced with the rest of these images featuring this same gorgeous bride in a botanical tiara! And quite frankly, we’re not sure we could ever choose a favorite. This refined wedding inspiration is making our hearts (and pinterest boards) full. Now, let’s dive in so you can see why. Spit spot!
Film wedding photographer, Carlos Hernandez, captures the essence of style in these images. And we’re not just talking about the bride’s wedding day looks! The inspiration for this story was natural textures, warm details and all the beauty that comes along with the changing seasons, and we’ll say he did a pretty stellar job of giving us a glimpse!
Scripty and Old World, these fine paper goods from Bespoke Strokes feature a color palette our hearts have been aching for. And how darling are the wax seals + illustrated envelope liner?
We. are. BREATHLESS!
Now the styling itself was a masterpiece of Seattle-based event designer Kaleb Norman James Design, who also arranged the florals throughout (at one point, literally serving them up on a silver platter!). He specializes in all things couture, and… yep, we can see it.
Next we have this Autumn table featuring pieces from Cort Party Rentals that’s perfect for an intimate gathering post a walk through crunchy leaves.
And there’s that silver platter in question – love it!
The gowns were supplied by couture bridal studio, Mea Marie Bridal Atelier . And how exquisite are the intricate details in all! Floral appliques, artistic hand-beading, sophisticated silhouettes. Just divine.
How beautiful are these shoes from Bella Belle Shoes? Fit for a queen. Literally.
The glitzy hairpieces from Erica Elizabeth are equal parts enchanting and majestic. We’d wear them 24/7 if we’re being completely honest.
From the designer, Kaleb of Kaleb Norman James Design: One of my favorite things about Instagram is when networking goes beyond just likes and comments and you actually get to meet up in real life! I’ve been a fan of Carlos Hernandez‘s photography work for a long time, and after recently moving into a new studio, he reached out about doing its inaugural shoot! The inspiration was to embrace the beautiful change of the season through the floral and accent that with natural textures, like soft linen, reclaimed wood and rattan. We wanted the overall setting to be more simplistic and let the details really speak, hence the solid backdrops and white walls. One of my favorite details was the floral hat, as a bouquet alternative. We moved the shoot outside during the sunset, as it was the first beautifully sunny fall day we’d had in weeks.
We’ll end on a sweet note with this two-tier confection from The Sweetside . The perfect size for an intimate gathering!
